Apple announced their entry to the smart watch market. The press, predictably enough, oohed and aah-ed about how wonderful the Apple watch was gonna be. Certain lucky reviewers got the see the future product up close, but did not get to actually manipulate it. Even without actual hand-on interaction, there was no shortage of glowing reviews of what the watch was going to be like
So why wait for the Apple watch? Really, why? I love my Moto, and I am not willing to wait until 2015 to have a smart watch. I can get significant value from my Android watch in the six months that will make me a more discriminating customer. Why wait? Technology is not a lifelong commitment. I have bought more than one smartphone/media player/laptop/fitness-band. Besides, it takes Apple three versions to get it right, so I may skip the first two generations.
So until Apple comes late to the party to make their big splash, I am going to continue enjoy the timer/email/translator/life coach/etc. already on my wrist.
